Las Violetas Group
Update on Las Violetas GroupThe communal bank “Las Violetas” is made up of 6 members, each one of them with a different job. Teresa is 47 years old. She is separated, with three children, two of whom are still dependents. For twelve years she has worked in candy sales, working as a mobile vendor. This business has allowed Teresa to take care of some of her household expenses. It is because of this that she is asking for a loan, to keep investing in her business. She will use it to buy sweets such as cookies, candies, chocolates, and drinks. Teresa’s desire is to set up a stand, and in this way not have to be a mobile vendor. The “Las Violetas” group is thankful for the loan that was given, because it has made their progress possible. Teresa is pictured seated on the left, wearing a white shirt and fuchsia jacket.

Concurrent and Successive Loans
Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.
This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
